My college age daughter talked me into grabbing some hot chocolate. We waited 15 minutes for a table (we put our name in after being told it would be a 10 minute wait). After 15 minutes, we went to check. We waited as a party of two that had just entered asked if there was a wait. They were told... More

We had such great meals at Max Brenner. The service was very good and fast, and the place itself was pretty clean and well maintained. After we enjoyed our main courses we ordered the chocolate fondue. Needless to say it was amazing! If you come to NYC and want to enjoy a little chocolate heaven, Max Brenner is the place... More

A MUST go! Mac and cheese was amazing but the chocolate fondue sharer was what dreams were made of. Could have had one to myself it was THAT great. Toast your own marshmallows was a great touch. Huge menu for desserts so is hard to chose. May have to keep going back to try every choice.

Waited 30 minutes (at least they did text us so we could walk around nearby) for a very crowded table in a very crowded restaurant... Service was pretty slow and inaccurate (mixed up entrees, unsure of ingredients in items, forgotten items) though the server was very friendly, so that helped offset. We should have just saved this place for dessert... More

Went for dinner. Had a reservation for 8 people. They had my table ready when we arrived. The waitress was very good at the beginning and end of the meal. The waitress memorized our entire order without writing anything down. The food was ok, however, the desserts were very good.

Went for breakfast, it was amazing. The pancakes were huge and so fluffy and light. The chocolate sauce that came with them was some of the best chocolate I had ever had. I also had a white russian... it is a must they are so good.

You may think that I am overstating it, but if you LOVE chocolate, and wanted a place that LOVES it as much as you, this is a must. At MB, they serve food, but it seems that your burger, or pasta, or salad are the side dish, for the main attraction, the desert. A place that offers chocolate fondue or... More

We were in New York and a friend had said this was a great place to eat. She wasn't wrong. The food was amazing. We had sirloin steak and onion sandwich then the pizza with hazelnuts and mallows. The cocktails were also very good. It is located in Union Square area but walkable from Times Square. Prices are normal for... More

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighbourhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighbourhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
